At the regular monthly meeting of the Floyd County Historical Society, learn about recent archaeological investigation that has occurred in the undercroft below Second Baptist Church.
The lower level of the church has long been believed to have been utilized by fugitive slaves making their way north to freedom, as the congregation was an Abolitionist stronghold before and during the Civil War.
